What's new for you in 2013?

Not what you have on the bench or what you have already purchased but what future builds/plans do you have for this year?

I'm thinking hard about that JS-3 kit, the RSO Radschlepper and hopefully before I die someone releases a Centurion!

Or any British tank.

Ahhhh, because we know it's coming, I guess you will just have to go modern then Jeff, & buy the Challenger 2 when it's available, haha

For myself, I "plan" to get a Sherman M4A3 & a T34/85 some time this year ... but unfortunately my planning has been sunk too many times in this economy already the last couple years , so planning is more like hoping!

But one thing, I'll definitely be working on another Pantherturm ___ ___

Ummm, the Chally 2 is a given.

For one, I knew it was coming. Two, I like it better than the Abrams.


Still need some British tank!

No new tanks for me; but I plan to upgrade to a Clark TK-22 / Benedini combo for my H.L. Pershing....The Clark " real recoil" has given me new ideas for the "smoking gun" project I worked on a couple years ago....

Ummmmm, for one, to you it should be obvious I already know, that you knew the the Challenger II was coming, because I said, "we know it's coming" in my reply, & because two, the pictures of it at the 2013 Nuremberg toy fair were already graciously shared by Tigertiki's Photobucket album & posted to RCU as well as other forums which we both know you frequent.

But you adding "Or any British tank." to your first post seems a bit whiny if you already know at least one is already coming this year, doesn't it? Makes it also seem more like you didn't know at least one British tank was already coming. But since we both know the Challenger 2 is definitely coming ... in your last reply instead of saying "Still need some British tank!", you should now be saying ... "Still need MORE British tanks", because obviously for you the Chally 2 & one British tank won't be enough - lol -

Anyway, I could care less about the Challenger, Abrams, or Leo, I don't like modern tanks one bit really, I'm more with you in what we really need would be a nice vintage WWII era British tank ... that's what I'll be waiting & hoping will come next year, or at least by 2015, because it doesn't look too good that we see any this year.

That was an awesome project (as well as the more recent speaker smoker ), so it will be nice to see some new videos & any new mod or directions you can take with it using the Clark boards!

I just wanted to inject some life around here and see what everyone is wanting for future projects.
